Missing teeth cause discomfort and embarrassment. Let us help restore your comfort and confidence with state-of-the-art dental implants. Dental implants are yet another way to replace missing teeth and help maintain your healthy smile. Dental implants replace the root structure of missing teeth or serve to support bridges or fixed partial dentures. The bone actually fuses to the implant and a crown is placed to provide the replacement tooth structure.
An incision will be made in your gums, and a series of specialized drills will be used to create a space for the implant. To avoid damage to the surrounding bone, drilling will start with a small drill bit that gets slightly larger to widen the hole. Then, the titanium screw of the dental implant will be placed into this hole. Depending on your treatment plan, the abutment may also be attached to the implant. Finally, your gums will be sutured and you will be able to return home the same day.
Once the implant has fused to the surrounding bone, then the dental crown can be attached. If not already attached, there may need to be a small surgery to attach the abutment prior to attaching the dental prosthetic. Once the prosthetic has been attached, the dental implant process is complete and your smile is restored!
